CF. How did you get into cosplay, who did you portray first, and why?
-My little brother wanted to go to a convention in Arizona and it was my job to take him. I went and simply fell in love with the idea of making costumes. It wasn’t until 2 years later when I finally started making costumes and actually having the confidence to go to a convention in a costume. Ever since I’ve been making costumes and going to shows!
CF. What’s the best part of cosplay?
-Meeting SO many people that share the same interest as I do and being able to get to hang out with them for an entire weekend! Not to mention learning new skills from those who cosplay as well.
CF. If you could be any super hero or villain who would you be and why?
Can I be Toothless? Does he count? Why? Because dragons.
CF. If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and what would you say to them?
…Do dragons count? Can I meet a dragon? If so, I would ask them if I could ride them.
CF. What’s your favorite sci-fi movie and what captivates about the plot?
-I’m not really a sci-fi kinda gal… D:
CF. What’s the craziest thing a fan sent you or requested?
-Nothing too crazy, but someone was sweet enough to bring me an amazing Sonic the Hedgehog piece of art he made and I LOVE IT SO MUCH because sonic <3
CF. What sidekick would you hire to be your personal assistant and why?
BEAST BOY. I don’t care if he isn’t really a side kick, but he’s my favorite and I think we would work well together. And we both like tofu.
CF. Do you know a lot about the series you cosplay?
Of course! I only cosplay what I love. I don’t like to do a costume of or from something that I know nothing about. It doesn’t feel right to me.
CF. What’s your favorite comic con to attend and what makes it so special?
This year I fell in love with Comikaze. I spent the entire weekend with one of my favorite gals, Toni Darling and it was honestly the most fun I had at a convention in a LONG time! We ran around in Kill la Kill outfits and it was the highlight of the con for me.
CF. What comic con’s are definitely attending this year?
Hmmm, for me I know for sure I am doing plenty! Taiyou con, Albuquerque Comic con, Wonder con, Denver comic con hopefully, etc! The list is HUGE!
CF. What’s one thing you wish fans wouldn’t do?
COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT. If you want to take a photo, pretty please ask first. It’s that simple <3
CF. Who was your favorite character to portray and what rocked about it?
Almost all of the characters I cosplay are in some way or form my favorite! But I think my Mako from Kill la Kill was killer! Not because of the intense work of the costume, but because of the fun I had in it!
CF. How do you keep cosplay fun?
By not making it a contest. Cosplay is by the nature of its name supposed to be fun
CF. Where can new fans go to follow you?
That’s an easy one! They can find me at my facebook page: Sincerely Sam Cosplay, or my instagram where I post all my derpy selfies: Sincerely_sami
CF. Other than this interview, what’s the craziest thing you agreed to do?
Swim with sharks!
